About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to our fabulous home away from home in historic St. John’s.

This 2-bedroom house is a gem right in the heart of downtown, it has many inviting features to make you feel comfortable and well taken care of.

At street level, there is a garage attached to the house where you can park your car during your stay. Beyond the garage is an entrance to our private fenced-in terrace, enjoy complete privacy while dining under the stars.

On the second level there is an open concept kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen is fully equipped with new and appealing cookware and dining ware. There is a coffee maker, toaster and microwave, as well as the usual oven and fridge. All you need to bring is your groceries and you will be ready to make a wonderful meal. The kitchen leads out to a little balcony, with 4 chairs and end tables, and a barbecue. The dining room has a table to seat six. After a day of exploring come home to curl up on the cozy lazy boy pull out sofa, a comfy library chair or enjoy a glass of wine on the deck and gaze at the stars . We also have a poker set, chess and some other board games, as well as various books for your enjoyment.

The house has digital tv, a dvd player and some movies.. There is free and unlimited long distance anywhere in North America, so you can save on your cell phone charge. The bedrooms are on the first floor, as well as a bathroom with a shower/bathtub. There is a stacked washer and dryer for your convenience outside the bathroom. The first bedroom and the second bedroom have new beds with luxury mattresses and superior linens. You will be very comfortable as you settle in for the night. Throughout the house is original Newfoundland art, such as paintings, antique hook rugs, and one of a kind model dories (fishing boats) made by Otto P. Kelland.

This house has an ideal location for a tourist, or for a longer term executive renter who wants to be able to walk to work . Many shops, galleries, restaurants and the harbour front are only minutes away. George St., the infamous and historic street lined with bars and pubs is literally a 2-minute walk (We know- we’ve timed it!). Many parks, museums, and sites are within easy walking distance such as Quidi Vidi Village, the Battery, Signal Hill, the Rooms. Cape Spear- the most Easterly Point in North America is only a ten minute drive away. Whale watching and iceberg tours start from the Harbour front and nearby Bay Bulls (15 minute drive).

Comfortable well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

This clean & very comfortable, well equipped house quickly became a home away from home. With the use of Wifi, local calls & Nefix, more than suiting the needs of our two generation adult family. We also got to enjoy the morning sun sitting on the deck.

We found the location perfect for walking to Downtown shops, bars, restaurants & local supermarket. We enjoyed walking the Harbour & on to Signal Hill (would recommend the Brownie at the Chocolate Cafe) enjoy the views :) we would also recommend lunch & views from The Rooms.

The owner provided a great service answering all of our questions & requests by email.

We are more than happy to recommend this property.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location for easy access to all venues including downtown, Signal Hill, and Cape Spear. Parking garage and on street, a bonus. Juliann was quick to respond to all emails. We were celebrating our 33rd anniversary and we can recommend it for couples or small families.
